  1. The city needs to recognize tax loss in the time of coronavirus and give up some of the art and other projects that lead to budget inbalance and pay down the cities debt so that the bond rating and costs improve.

  2. Not a single agenda item regarding the pandemic. Good to see the Commissioners are in dream land. Maybe we need Gables government put in lockdown. Jack Thompson

  3. What happened to outsourcing the horrible and expensive garbage service. On Lugo, a trash can sat for 3 weeks without being picked up. When the homeowner returned from business travel, he had to clean out all the maggots and rebag the trash. Why are we paying the trash fees for Coral Gables, in addition to the county, and the lack of service is astounding?

  4. we need to re open testing, how can we have contact with friends, workers, landscapers, housekeepers, dish washers, bar backs, and our neighbors if we cant test and test often? If its good enough for POTUS hourly or before he meets anybody why cant the city offer it for the residents and guest to the city? This is worth more than code enforcement and meter maids. Please re open testing and test often!m

  5. And here we go. More incompetence from Lago and Keon. Two imbeciles that have no business governing a city.

  6. Is this the complete official agenda. Are there no additional items to be discussed or voted upon?

  7. We need testing site to reopen, we are willing to pay & get tested for our peace of mind but maybe City can offer residents a small discount. Thanks.
